Dear colleagues,

We are organizing in Kumpula a three days event of the NordForsk “Random
geometry” network, consisting of three minicourses during three days.
All interested participants are welcome, and the courses should be
particularly beneficial for Ph.D. students. The minicourses take place
in Exactum lecture hall D123, June 18-20. You will find more information
on the event on the web page:

The lecturers and topics of the courses are:

– Philippe Di Francesco (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and
CEA Saclay):
“Integrable Combinatorics: Statistical Models and Cluster Algebras”
– Bergfinnur Durhuus (University of Copenhagen):
“Recurrence properties of random infinite graphs”
– David Cimasoni (University of Geneva):
